Description

The Sixth Annual Early Age Onset Colorectal Cancer Summit

"Putting Knowledge into Action: to Reduce EAO-CRC Incidence & Mortality"

The Early Age Onset Colorectal Cancer (EAO-CRC) Summit™ is a collaborative, evidence-based, multidisciplinary event that will bring together academicians, and clinical thought leaders from specialtie as well as early age onset (EAO) colorectal cancer (CRC) survivors and caregivers. The program will provide extensive opportunities for participants to advance their understanding of the rapidly increasing incidence of rectal and colon cancer among young adults under 50 years of age in the U.S. and abroad.

This groundbreaking program will, for a sixth consecutive year, provide all participants the opportunity to hear from and question leading clinicians and researchers on the lifesaving potential of timely clinical risk assessment/family cancer health history and earliest possible stage diagnosis. They will also have the opportunity to develop a collective recommendation for actively addressing this growing public health crisis.

An early age onset colorectal cancer diagnosis and subsequent treatment requires a collaborative, multimodal, and evidence-based approach to optimize patient survival, optimal care and quality of life. The EAO-CRC Summit™ represents an opportunity to maximize communication among health care professionals who have an impact on a patient’s journey including representatives from medical oncology, radiation oncology, surgery/surgical oncology, pathology, diagnostic imaging, nursing, nutrition, and social work. EAO-CRC Summit™ attendees will also have the opportunity to develop a collective recommendation for addressing critical barriers to optimal care for young adult colorectal cancer patients and their caregivers.

Once again, this year’s program will present a “Research in Progress” segment which will provide an update on critical “emerging” EAO-CRC research projects from across the globe foused on the known and possible causes of the increasing incidence of EAO-CRC including alterations in our food and water supply, the contribution of novel germline genetic factors and etiologic clues based on the molecular biology of EAO-CRC cancers.

Our faculty are world class speakers representing leading academic medical centers with major additional inspiring programmatic contributions from the Early Age Onset Colorectal Cancer Survivor Community of the United States and beyond.
